Come On Out

 

Come on out.  Spin around.

Come and play with me;

there is so much to see.

After our life-long game of Hide and Seek,

I am remembering me.

 

Come on out.  It's all right.

Come and talk with me;

tell me of all that you fear.

I will hold you and love you and let you know

I have room for all of your tears.

 

Come on out.  Take my hand.

Come and walk with me;

let's see what we can find.

I want to feel all the moments that you have held

in dreams and memories I left behind.

 

Come on out.  Spin around.

Come and play with me;

 For now, our hard work is done.

So, together we'll adventure through both then and now,

remembering how to have fun!

 

A View from Atop "The Hill"

 

Today is my fortieth birthday,

and as it comes to a close

in mind I am scanning far horizons,

while reflecting in calm repose.

I know not what I expected--

what likely homage might be due--

But it's really captured my surprise,

this sudden panoramic view!

 

I welcome ways my path is heading,

while curious in view of paths I past.

I'm trading in excited hype

for serenities that last.

 

My youth was much in upward climbs;

steep to rewarded goals;

now I'm looking forward to

equal downslides of my rainbow.

 

No highlights in my greying hair,

no tucking this or that--

Hell, I walk with canes anyway,

and I adore a fancy hat!

 

For I embrace the sacred aged,

and the venerability of "old;"

the peace of Spirit's wisdom

beyond endless pots of gold.

 

May I be useful to our youthful

and as my coming years unwind.

may my dearest loves be truthful;

on approach, may Death be kind.
